- animal_keeping=*<animal>, where <animal> means the name of the animal (English singular form). If more than one species is kept, provide a semi-colon-separated list, e.g. animal_keeping=sheep;cow .
|An open stable for horses.
In the UK the term open stable is rather unknown, because for some legal reason these are non-existent there. Somewhat similar to a field_shelter — sometimes called a free barn. Contrary to an open stable the facilities within the area (e.g., feeding stations, watering places, etc.) have to be moveable.
|A paddock for horses. Also valid for the open-air area of a paddock box. For the closed area of a paddock box see building=stable.
